A Fool for Your Love

The former Jester is so clumsy that he caused a fire at the Royal Table, so he has disappeared in a puff of smoke. His replacement, a female Jester, has a different perspective, and the King could live without her social commentary. Lady Abigail is betrothed, against her will, to Lord Boris, who takes a fancy to this new Jestress.  Meanwhile, the Jester sneaks back to court and enlists the Town Crier’s help in getting his job back.  Disguised as the Jestress, he is mistakenly wooed by Lord Boris. The Jestress changes some outdated attitudes, and the Jester teaches Lord Boris how to treat a lady. This mixed-up comedy about fools in love is a favorite.
